The deadline for applications for the Cooperative Finance Leaders for America Program (CFLA) has been extended to July 18th.
The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is launching the 2nd year of CFLA, a six-month paid fellowship that helps new leaders put their passion for cooperative finance to work while allowing credit unions to gain access to a pool of talented staff who share a commitment to economic empowerment.
This year CFLA will recruit, train and support up to 15 new and emerging professionals for placement in leadership positions in credit unions dedicated to providing credit and safe banking services to low- and moderate-income communities. CFLA's intensive training program will include a weeklong summer institute in New York City this August (10-16th) and on-going support throughout the fellowship. All fellowships are expected to begin in September 2014 and continue through February 2015.
